The plan was to take the Coupé out of hibernation right about now. The sun is out, spring is in the air, roads look dry and inviting. However, the world is going crazy. Health is more important than cars. So I guess the Z4 will remain parked for awhile.
In the meantime, here's another photo from last year.

I decided to take the Z4 out of hibernation! With Sweden not in lockdown, we're free to move around with some restrictions.
I will enjoy driving while we can!
Yesterday I went on an evening drive, just for the sake of driving. It was great!

Thank you everyone. :)
Sweden can be very beautiful. It also helps that the Z4 is very photogenic. :thumbsup:

Regarding the current situation, Sweden have much less restrictions than most other countries in EU. Each citizen has her own responsibility to minimize social contact and keep safe. If it's the right approach or not, I don't know. I guess time will tell.
However, it means that we can move around relative freely are allowed to go for drives. :play:

Here's some more sunset shots from a few days ago.
The photos were taken at Fjärås Bräcka, located about 40km south of Gothenburg.

Last week I had the Z4 in for service. It was time for an oil change.
At my request they also did a wheel alignment. It wasn't out by much, but they did some adjustments to it. Now it drives really well.
I went on a drive this morning on some of my favorit roads. Very much enjoyed it.
Here some photos from a stop on the way.
(Same photo location as the sunset photos above, but now in daylight and about month apart)

Great location - how old are the standing stones?
